Capello: “Atalanta can fight for the scudetto, but must keep Ederson and Koopmeiners”

“Fighting for the championship is possible, but we need to keep Ederson and Koopmeiners.” Word of Fabio Capellowhich on the pages of La Gazzetta dello Sport thus analyzes the ambitions ofAtalanta, fresh winner of the Europa League. “Gasperini has been training the team for many years, he has clear ideas about what is missing to make the leap – says Don Fabio – the base is excellent and I also don’t think that much is missing to play for it. Furthermore, all the competition will go through a moment of change”.

Is it possible not to sell the jewels?
“Offers will certainly arrive. I’m referring above all to two exceptional midfielders like Koopmeiners and Ederson. After a final played like that, they will both be coveted by big names across Europe, keeping them won’t be easy.”

What would it do?
“The first addition I would make is a wingman with great pace. Did you see Frimpong from Leverkusen the other evening? Well, in Serie A you don’t often get to play against such fast players, but already if I had to face Real Madrid in the European Super Cup you would need a full-back who can handle that pace, especially defensively. In general, I would add speed to the team.”
